Episode 6 of Game of Thrones season 7 has leaked online on streaming, torrent, and file-sharing gates after HBO Spain accidentally broadcast the episode via its on-demand streaming platform.
Late last month, the hackers claimed that they stole 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO. A full episode of “Ballers” and “Room 104” have been leaked online as well as a script that’s allegedly for the next episode of Game of Thrones.
After that, the criminals published a half-gigabyte sample of its stolen HBO data, including emails, employment contracts, and financial balance sheets, along with the script of the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones, asking for a ransom—about $6 Million to be paid in Bitcoins.
The episode 6 “Death is the Enemy” was scheduled to air on Sunday, August 20 at 9 p.m. on HBO. The episode is next to last in season 7.
The episode is currently available on many websites such as The Pirate Bay, YouTube, Mega.nz. Also, the links have been shared on all social media sites, from Reddit to Twitter, and from Instagram to Facebook.
According to HBO:
“We have learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO España platforms.”
“The error appears to have originated with a third-party vendor, and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized. This is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the US.”
